Title: One Night in Edinburgh

My Rating: 4 out of 5
One night. But how many second chances?
Heartbroken on Hogmanay, Steph wanders through the Edinburgh street party until she bumps into Jamie. He’s funny, attractive, and clearly interested. In a word, he’s perfect – but she didn’t get his number. All she remembers is his lime and mango beer.
Determined to be reunited, Steph tracks him by a milk carton-style campaign, sticking a message to his favourite beer across local pubs. Although eventually reunited, Jamie is frequently uncontactable and evasive, and Steph worries she’s on the path to heartbreak once more.
There’s a fine line between being patient and being gullible, and Steph’s reaching her limit. When a chance encounter with Jamie reveals his secret, she faces an even tougher decision. Should Steph give love another chance, or was one night in Edinburgh all she and Jamie were meant to have?
Steph and Connor have been together since University – their relationship is comfortable and steady, so the last thing Steph is expecting is for Connor to end their relationship on New Years Eve after confessing to Steph that he is actually gay. Reeling from the break-up, Steph is persuaded by her best friend, Anna, to join her in celebrating the New Year at the Hogmanay street party in Edinburgh. This is where Steph meets Jamie. He is attractive and fun, and they both have the best evening together.
Waking up the following morning, Steph is on cloud nine – there is just one small problem – she didn’t get Jamie’s number – all she remembers is his favourite lime and mango beer, so she goes on a mission to track him down by sticking a message to his favourite beer across local pubs. After some bvery inappropriate messages from people claiming to be Jamie, they are both eventually reunited. However, Jamie repeatedly becomes elusive and uncontactable, and Steph worries that she is heading for another major heartache.
Does Jamie really want to be with Steph, or is he just messing her around? Or is there something else going on with Jamie? One Night in Edinburgh is a cute story of a romance building between two people, both who have complicated lives and who both are wary of getting hurt. A lovely light-hearted romantic story.
